When Victor Cahn's Shakespeare the Playwright was issued in 1991, it was "highly recommended for any general public library and for academic collections at all undergraduate levels" (Choice) and viewed as "a useful guide for the general reader, as well as high school and undergraduate students" Library Journal. Now Professor Cahn has revised his introduction to make the context of Shakespeare's plays more meaningful to the beginning researcher and to show how the plays have been performed from the 16th century onward. In addition, the bibliographies for each of the 37 plays have been updated to include the best new research. These updates and revisions will enhance the use of this guide for the general reader, student, and researcher, from high school onward.

?A useful guide for the general reader, as well as high school and undergraduate students, to Shakespeare's 37 plays. After a brief introduction outlining Shakespeare's life and career, Cahn carefully guides the reader through each play in turn, from first scene to last, using a mixture of quotation, paraphrase, and critical comment. His style is accessible and unpretentious, and his insights into the 'psychological consistency' of Shakespeare's characters--the main focus of the commentary--are stimulating and sometimes provocative. The bibliographies at the end of each chapter, and at the end of the volume, provide a guide to further study for the nonspecialist.?-Library Journal (on the first edition)
